Registration notes: Designed in 1991 by Cornishman Howard Curnow on the back of a Barclay's Bank statement which he then sent to Lochcarron of Scotland for tidying up and weaving. Prompted by his accountant he had to ask for it back. The white on black is the flag of St. Piran. The purple is for Cornish heather, the red for the cough (a songbird) and the yellow for saffron - the flavouring in Cornish saffron cakes. Kernow is the Cornish for Cornwall. Tartan available from: www.cornwall-tours.com.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
